Assurance and accreditation

As the leading healthcare accreditation service in the UK, we have unrivalled experience in developing and applying quality standards both in the UK and internationally.  

We've achieved accreditation to ISQua standards for our organisation, our surveyor training and selection programme and our latest standards.  Clients who work with our standards can achieve ISO 9001:2008 certification.
Our accreditation programmes combine expert support with training and external peer review, and are supported by a unique online healthcare accreditation system.

Our assurance services combine data analysis with site assessments to benchmark your care standards against national quality standards, and identify areas of good practice and opportunities for improvement. Our team will then help you implement a robust quality framework to address any gaps and create a culture of sustainable continuous improvement.

Our accreditation programmes cover:

  • Addiction treatment centres
  • Care homes
  • Hospices
  • Hospital accreditation (NHS acute trusts, community hospitals, international hospitals and independent sector)
  • Mental health providers
  • Primary care teams
  • Records and information management
  • Oncology services
  • Risk and patient safety
  • Leadership and corporate management
  • Maternity and neonatal care

"Through our successful accreditation of Vhi Swift Care Clinics, The Well, The Well at Work, Global Diagnostics and Centric Health Corporate Support, the value of the rigour achieved by systematization has been demonstrated. It has led to a demonstrable improvement both in the quality of patient care and our risk management profile."
